The Current State of the Unmotivated & Disengaged

The latest (September 2009) survey conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of found that:

  • 40% of U.S. workers say they have had difficulty staying motivated at work in the past year
  • Nearly one-fourth (24%) do not feel loyal to their current employer
  • 23% of employers rate their organization’s current employee morale as low

Time to panic yet?

BOTTOMLINE: Though the survey confirms that low morale levels are an unfortunate side effect of the recession, contends that many companies are trying to address negative workplace issues with: 1.) better communications (more often, many different ways, and encouraging two-way communication) and 2.) programs to help employees feel "connected" - like valued team members (e.g., recognition programs, providing better work/life balance through flexible work opportunities)
